Absolute Perfection

The second we pulled into the Venue, I knew it’s where I wanted to spend the most beloved day of my life. The grounds are beyond amazing, the accommodations are beyond expectation, but most importantly; the owners make sure they understand your vision for the day and stop at nothing less than perfect. I was so comfortable with Diane and Kylie that I was not worried one bit about any of the details, I knew they had everything covered. Anything I wasn’t sure about they made suggestions for along the way, based on what I wanted for the overall feel for the evening. I could go on and on for hours. I. LOVE. THEM. You can’t ask for more than they automatically deliver on your wedding day. And the relief of having a backup ceremony site that ISNT the reception place is tenfold!

Amazing Venue!

Where to even begin, everything about the Barns of Kanak is wonderful! The venue is absolutely stunning, especially in the fall, and the staff is awesome! We got married at the Barns of Kanak in September and the day couldn’t have been more perfect! Delaney was our coordinator and she is amazing! She’s so organized and detailed, she figured out details before we had even thought of them and had answers to our questions before we asked. Delaney responds so quickly to your questions and messages that you wonder if she ever takes a day off!

The rest of the staff is amazing too, our wedding day moved seamlessly and we didn’t have to worry about a thing! Everyone is so kind and was always looking to make our day the best it could possibly be.
Our ceremony was outside against a beautiful backdrop and the reception barn was beautiful as well. The Barns of Kanak has everything you need including a farmhouse for the Bridal Party to get ready, a groom’s cottage, and ceremony sites for both indoor and outdoor ceremonies.

We could not have picked a more perfect venue for a more perfect day!

Like "Coming Home"

The Barns of Kanak is where dreams come true! It is like "coming home." Breathtaking grounds, and structures. Our friends and families found multiple nooks and crannies to sit and visit throughout the reception. When night time comes, it is magical as the tiny lights outline barns and trees. All day and evening long, we heard compliment after compliment about how beautiful it was. These folks have all bases covered in planning the event, and they are patient, kind and loving ... sharing in the joy of the occasion. We honestly loved having them with us throughout all our day! Part of the family now. Thank you, Barns of Kanak.

Where do I even begin? My husband and I got married at The Barns of Kanak on July 21st of this year and it still feels like a dream. To start, they let my husband propose at the venue! I had never been there and they set up a whole “tour” and everything that I had no idea was a setup and allowed my whole family to come and surprise me for the most memorable proposal! Kylie, her mom Dianne, and our other coordinator Delaney were absolutely amazing and helped me to create the wedding of my dreams. They were so helpful every step of the way. If I could give The Barns of Kanak one billion stars I would! It’s an absolutely beautiful venue with the most wonderful owners. I could not have asked for a better experience! It was the perfect mix of natural, rustic, and elegant. I’d choose this venue a billion times over!

They Deserve Ten Stars

Words cannot describe what a gorgeous venue this is. It’s an absolutely dream come true for anyone who is getting married. They have it set up perfectly for the “just in case the weather fails” also. The back up barn for an indoor wedding is breathtaking. The owners are so knowledgeable and so helpful from start to finish. The minute we walked in we just knew that this was the only option to celebrate our union with friends and family. Diane and our wedding planner Delaney were so helpful with getting us through our planning. From start to finish they had every detail down so that it was one less thing for us to think about. The whole staff who helped set everything up could not have done a better job. They made our big day a dream come true and it would have not been possible without them. We look forward to having all future milestones shared at this venue because the grounds are absolutely breathtaking for photographs. They deserve ten stars for everything that they offer and do for you. We love The Barns of Kanak and they will always hold a special place in our hearts.

A dream come true

Our wedding at Barns of Kanak was a dream come true. We could not have picked a more beautiful place run by wonderful and friendly people. They added so many special touches to make the day truly spectacular. They were also so helpful in making sure our day ran smoothly. I didn’t have to worry about a thing. Kylie was even so friendly and helpful that she picked up a suit that didn’t come in until the day of our wedding and dropped all of the men’s outfits off the next day. If you’re looking for true friendship and people who treat you like family you won’t find any better place than the barns of Kanak! Zach and I are truly grateful we found the perfect venue to celebrate our love at!

Kendall, thank you so much for your kind review. We wish you and Zach all the best and can't wait to have you back at your special place! Congratulations, again!

Everything and more

There truly are no words to adequately describe how highly I recommend this venue and the amazing people who run it. Our big day was everything I've ever dreamed of and so much more. We truly owe it all to the tireless work ethic and dedication possessed by Tom, Diane, Kylie, and Delaney.

Tom and Diane are, without a doubt, the sweetest people you will ever meet. From the start, you will feel as though you have become a part of their family. The interest they have in your special day is genuine and they truly go out of their way to make sure every bride has the wedding of her dreams. They are the backbone of The Barns and you can instantly see how much pride they take in what they do.

Kylie and Delaney are absolute saints. Although I'm still not quite sure how I didn't drive them crazy with the slew of messages I sent to in the days leading up to our wedding, I will forever be thankful that they ALWAYS replied (nearly immediately, nonetheless) and eased any nerve or fear I ever had. Their attention to detail is second to none as they work passionately to ensure every part of your day is executed perfectly.

Tom, Diane, Kylie, Delaney and the entire Barns of Kanak team will always hold a special day in our heart. We fully believe that choosing The Barns as the place we began our life together will always be the best decision we could have made. From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU!!

Such an incredible venue!

My husband and I could not thank the Barns of Kanak and their wonderful staff enough after our wedding in June. The venue itself is everything I ever imagined for my wedding day and is truly breathtaking. The farmhouse and groom's cottage were perfect for the bridal party to get ready in during the day. There are multiple options for ceremony sites, all of which are incredible. The "rain" site is a beautiful barn with drapes and a view of the field. I did not have to stress about whether it was going to rain on our wedding day because I knew that either site we chose was going to be perfect. So many of our guests commented on how they loved the venue, especially during the reception. Guests were able to dance in the reception barn, hang out by the fire pit, or be outside playing corn hole.

Words can't describe how incredible the staff is at the Barns of Kanak. You can feel the love that Tom and Diane, the owners, put into the venue and each event they host. Kylie and Delaney were our day-of coordinators. From the start of the wedding planning process, they made everything fall into place so easily. They were communicative, easy going, and made sure to always focus on my own vision for the wedding day. The day of, I was blown away by how everything came together and how smoothly the wedding went. Kylie and Delaney are so talented at what they do and I am so grateful for them. The entire staff allowed me to truly enjoy my wedding day without a single worry. We would recommend this venue to absolutely anyone!

From the bottom of our hearts

The Barns of Kanak is a place that will forever hold a special place in our hearts. This venue was all we could have ever asked for and more. It was within minutes of our hometown, which was a bonus when making sure our guests could enjoy the evening with us and make it home quickly and safely. IT IS ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS...I mean, look at these pictures! It was the perfect mix of rustic/glam, which was exactly the vibe we were going for. Most importantly, their staff. Within a month of booking our wedding with Kanak, we were informed that the venue was on the market for sale. After hearing this, you could only imagine the fear. To my surprise, a very close family friend, the McCormick's, were the new owners of The Barns of Kanak. An actual dream come true. Their family and team paid attention to each and every little detail on our special day and the weeks leading up. We never once had to worry about when to do this, where to go for that, who needs to tell this person this, how do I do that... we were cared for like royalty. Diane, thank you so much for caring for us with grace and for being a part of not only our wedding day but our lives. Kylie Hester, my high school dance company "big sis"/wedding coordinator, you are an angel. Thank you for being my leaning post and fairy godmother through the whole crazy wedding planning process, thank you for making pretty signs for our day, thank you for tending to each and every little detail, thank you for your friendship, thank you for everything. The Barns of Kanak deserves much more recognition that a simple review could offer. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you all SO MUCH!

I wouldn’t have wanted to get married anywhere else

We had our wedding on May 11th at The Barns. Kylie and Delaney were fantastic through the entire process but I never imagined how perfect they would make everything for my day. I cannot recommend them enough. Planning the wedding myself was stressful but The Barns of Kanak staff did everything they could to help me. Kylie and Delaney took all the decorations from me at the rehearsal and immediately started setting them up. We left so much in their hands and they did one million times more with what I had than I could have imagined. Everything about our wedding was perfect because of them. I made it through the whole wedding day without stressing or doubting them at all. I could really trust Kylie and Delaney to get it right, and they did. It was fantastic and I wouldn’t have wanted to get married anywhere else.

In love from the start!

The Barns of Kanak was the first and only venue my husband and I looked at and we were in love from the start. This venue was the most elegant, rustic and perfect place for our winter wedding and I HIIIIIGHLY recommend to any new bride-to-be. The staff there is phenomenal and they definitely met our every need and expectation. They made us feel like family and we didn’t stress about a single decoration, detail, or anything.

Perfect Venue!

My husband and I got married on a very rainy day in May. The venue was absolutely beautiful rain or shine, however they brought my outdoor vision to life inside of the beautiful barn! Then quickly got it ready for the reception. They also made sure everyone was escorted to the barn with umbrellas so my guest never felt a drop of rain! The grounds are beautiful and the owners were extremely helpful! I highly recommend The Barns of Kanak!

You are so kind, Britney! Thank you so much for sharing this. We hope you are doing well!

We cannot thank the owners and staff at the Barns enough for going above and beyond to make everything go smoothly, perfectly from start to finish.
